and a regular on fox. jonathan, good to see you. okay, should the minimum wage be increased and should it be the same across the country, state by state, i'm talking about. if not, what would you base it on, market to market, let's start there, jonathan. >> well, wages are not arbitrary. they're not based on whim and feeling. they're actually based on productivity and the demand for supply and labor. so the wages, resulting in job losses, especially among the fast food works working in this job. and the finding about minimum wage was the determination of the labor department back in 1938 when the first minimum wage was enacted. in effect, it is discrimination, it says to a low skilled worker if you can't produce at $15 an hour you can't produce at all. and of course, it says to the employer you can't hire them either. so it is a lose/lose event for all, and a loss of jobs. >> let's go here, to the heritage foundation, saying increasing memory wage would hurt the jobs and the economy. again, so you seem to agree with that particular proposal? >> and it hurts the workers, as well. i mean

could be surprising for many. jonathan betz has a closer look at what the president says is an economic inequality gap. >> simply put the poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer. first off, what does this mean? the median income for an american household was $53,000, down $yea from the year before and down $5,000 from 1999 when you adjust for inflation. but the economy is growing. however almost all of the money that's being made is going to the very rich. since 2009 the income of the top 1% grew by 31%. money is being made, but only for about a million and a half people here. yet for everyone else, 99% of the population, their salaries have barely moved in four years, less than 1%. the richest are taking home the most since the 1920s. why? some suggest years of tax cuts for the wealthy, the growth of the finance and technology companies, led to wall street fat cats and techies. computers and robots have taken a lot of the jobs since the 1970s. the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. president obama has suggested to bump it up to about $10 an hour. one study suggests the mini
to effect major changes without ever going through congress. jonathan turley, a supporter of the president and his policies calls the trend troubling. >> the problem with what the president is doing is he's not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system, he's becoming the very danger the constitution was designed to avoid, that is the concentration of power in any single branch. >> reporter: other constitutional experts argue that president obama is carrying out his constitutional duties to take care that the laws be faithfully executed by revising obama care in ways that will make it viable. >> i have to say that hyperventilating about how extraordinary and unprecedented and unconstitutional these delays are is just -- is just that, it's hyperventilation and contrary to obvious historical fact. >> reporter: house republicans say talk of impeachment is futile giving a democratically controlled senate but say they'll keep fighting. >> he doesn't have a debate in the oval office about what he wants to do, he does what he wants to do. then you no longer have representative democracy,
to jonathan hunt with details. his is it getting ugly. never heard of this chef before. >> huge star. host of "the taste" on abc and used to an entirely different type of grilling than the one chev is getting in court in london the past couple of days. asked again and again today about her admitted cocaine use, she said, quote, i would rather be on it. and explain about the drug usage but i wanted to make sure i wasn't going to be bullied and talk about an incident that took place in a humiliating place. that's the incident with her husband, who was caught on camera choking her outside a london restaurant. he claimed he was looking for traces of cocaine up her nose. she said in court he was not examining me for cocaine. that's a story he made into clear his name. they are now, not surprisingly, divorced. >> this case had nothing to do with the divorce. >> this is actually about two assistants. accused of spending a million dollars that wasn't there belonging to the chef and her husband, on expensive vacations, hotel rooms. those are the two assistants. what does this have to do with cocain
a short time ago. jonathan karl, certainly president obama made aware of the news, the loss this afternoon. have we heard anything yet from the president? >> the white house is well aware of this, something we have been tracking a long time. no official statement yet. was a towering influence on president obama, inspiration. if you look now at the screen, that is the one and only photograph of president obama and mandela together, happening the one time that manned -- that obama got to meet his hero as a young freshman senator, newly elected senator, and mandela was visiting washington. he had that meeting, that single photo, obama in silhouette. he wassident, back when senator obama, wrote a forward to a book by nelson mandela, and the words here give you a sense. by the way, the pictures right now, that is the president in the cell where nelson mandela spent 17 years in prison and in south africa, 17 of the 27 years that nelson mandela spent in prison. trip, the president visited south africa earlier this year. he had hoped to get a chance to have one last meeting with mandela. forela wa
and potentially quite a power struggle. jonathan hunt is with us on the news deck. i was reading about this. what struck me was how much they were saying about very private and personal matters, something i've never seen then north koreans do. >> this was a very public firing. there have been plenty of what communist party watchers like to call purges, incidents of officials being thrown out in the past, but none as public or humiliating as this one. look at these photographs published on state tv. they show the uncle literally thrown out of a communist party meeting, and those photographs came along with a long statement read on behalf of the government, by state television, reporters, the statement said, in part, that jung song had been kicked out because, quote, he had improper relations with several women and was wined and dined in back rooms of luxury restaurants, ideologically sick and eyesle. he used funds and squandered foreign currency. what is not known is how kim jong-un has decided to do with his uncle. is he just removed and going to live a quiet, private, and hopefully peaceful life

voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun e
dangerous. jonathan hunt's in here with us. he's been covering that region for a long time. do we have an idea of how this is going to work? >> we have a pretty clear idea of how this is going to work. first job is to put those hundreds of tons of chemical agents onto a bunch of trucks, drive them from points across syria to the coastal city of latakia. latakia is on the mediterranean coast. they'll be loaded on to the -- leave latakya, rendezvous somewhere in the mediterranean. on board will be a crew of around 36. they will neutralize those chemical agents. it's going to be very difficult doing it. they need very calm seas obviously. i spoke to one chemical weapons expert, john paul zander earlier today. he told me "everyone is cautious of the risks and hazards, but there will be maximum precautions. and the process is using proven technology. it's definitely workable." workable but very difficult. it's all due to get underway in the early days of january. >> none of this is going to be easy. now, the syrian government has agreed to hand them over, but there are plenty of the more ex
the police are overreaching. jonathan sill says for this case to progress it has to be the boys knew the person was drunk and that they knew the accident would happen. so there's a standard of proof that is very, very high. it would be very difficult for the state to say one of the boys' conduct actually caused the accident. other thing you're a parent, i thought about, how much responsibility is on the shoulder of the parent who some people if they want to be cynical would say why didn't you teach your kid not to overindulge and underage drink, if we're going to go that route of who's responsible. >> i'm not saying it's an easy case but i don't agree with the analogies the way they were presented. i won't say it's an individual with a gun in his hand. to the extent this driver got out and leaves her the keys, he's handing the gun or it's someone who's intoxicated and now going for a swim in the ocean and you're giving them the bathing suit. you're facilitating. the prosecution is saying you're facilitating the process that puts them on this deadly sbiral. i don't know they'll be suc
many of them raise their voices now, not on how many times the president does. let's go to jonathan martin, covering today's protest in new york. last year, 200 fast food workers held a one day strike at more than 20 restaurants here. are we expecting something like that today. >> it really remains to be seen just how significant, how large this protest will be. this all started and it has grown from a year ago with just a few fast food workers walking out in new york. this restaurant is open for business, people going in and out. a year ago in august, there were 500 people who protested outside of this mcdonald's. not all of them were fast food workers. we could see that today. organizers say it has grown bigger, expanding to 100 cities, smaller cities, so they feel like their movement has certainly grown. this latest wave of protests or planned protests started yesterday here in new york and about five other cities with one particular group, moveon.org delivering petitions in some five cities. >> you can work full time here and not support yourself, much less a family. here we are
